On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Pueblo Colorado

At least a little bit of it anyway. Last week I had to spend the whole day there and here are some of the things I saw with a bit of explanation. This is a interesting small city.

I saw this fellow from a ways away struggling  trying to take his own picture of this beautiful fish. I did it for him with his own camera and got this one with mine. It's the only one and happy it came out as good as it did. I've never caught anything close to this color of red.

I have this thing about "old" beveled glass doors like these. There are a number of different configurations and they'll all so cool. Hotel Vail is now apartments and the doors were locked and I wanted inside bad!

I want very much to take pictures with certain parameters with beveled glass doors being the center piece. I think the results could be real cool. You do not see many around here. I'm hoping to get lucky this spring when I'm around the Mississippi River and get inside one of these old old house above the river that's loaded with features like this. I would very much enjoy that. I'm always looking for the beveled glass but I just don't see it here.

The lobby has so many stories I'm sure.
I could live here too.

What is called the River  Walk where the Arkansas River  was partially diverted to flow through the old part of Pueblo. It's pretty neat trendy and upscale.

An old steamer out back of the train station.
In side the depot which has been remodeled and I'm not sure what is original. No matter what they did it must have been a fun place to start or end a train trip.


I couldn't figure out what this was at first then I remembered I sat the camera right on the counter. It's interesting.
Some other pictures of buildings in the same general area and one of an old sign.




If gas goes to 5 bucks a gallon driving the 40 miles up to here may be all the adventure I can afford. There are other places here I want to explore the zoo being one of them.  This was a great day.

Kat Moves

Think I understand about this kitty and it's behavior. I've mentioned before this cat does not play except with it's tail. I believe it may have been a bit abused because it scares so easily and after being scared or accidentally stepping on one of it's feet it cringes in fright. She does other things too that seem odd and my brother pointed out  it does so because it's the only way it can feel safe and that's exactly correct.

The other safe place besides inside here is the garage close by which has to be it's home when I'm not here and when it gets nicer out. It does venture out a bit but is slinky at all times. This kitty can hunt as I've seen it with a rabbit and a dove. This is a very nice cat.

Because of it's abused childhood Stretch forgets those times by burying it's head in the food bowl often. This cat can eat and drink I tell you. It's nice out and she's going to spend the rest of the day outside.

Yesterday was the first time I really saw this cat do something like this. At first it didn't pay attention to the laser. It took two days and finally I got it to go after it. There's more coming for sure.
